Château de Malmaison

Acquired by Napoleon Bonaparte and Empress Josephine in 1799, this magnificent building was entirely transformed by architects Percier and Fontaine into a unique example of Consular-style architecture. Between 1800 and 1802, the Château de Malmaison became, along with the Tuileries in central Paris, a main centre of power, where major political decisions concerning France’s future were taken. From the splendid library to the oval bedroom where Josephine breathed her last, on 29 May 1814, discover the most intimate corners of this home, recalling its glorious past.
